I Pretended To Be A Street Style Photographer

It was like, really hard – and I've got the pictures to prove it. Go ahead and grade me, I can take it!

Street style photographers don’t have it easy. Not only do they have to bear the biting cold during the fall and winter months, they have to deal with policemen, irritated drivers and well, each other. Everyone wants to get a good shot and there are only those few precious minutes to get it. Little squabbles are bound to happen. Then, there is the literal legwork that they have to do, chasing after subjects who walk uncommonly fast despite their five-inch heels. All that in a bid to get that one perfect shot for you and I, the ferocious followers of street style fashion.

I don’t know about you, but I find it all quite fascinating. In fact, it is one of the more amusing things I find about fashion week. So, instead of just standing idly by this season, I decided to enter the fray and become one with the madness. The observer becomes the subject. Ooooooooh.

Well, sort of. Because I have to stick by Yoyo so we can go into shows together, I didn’t get to shoot anyone else. There goes my authenticity. I’m sure I would be whining a lot more if running was involved. BUT! BUT! BUT! I did take all of the above shots while huddling with the other photographers. Yoyo had no idea that I was snapping her. AND, I even got pushed by a policeman and bumped by a car while at it. I’m so street style photographer.

So…how did I do? (Obviously, those above are the best of the many, many photos that I took. The rest were so embarrassingly out of focus or badly lit that I deleted them – immediately.)
